When doing a live recording, or when you have either a lot of players and not enough mics, you can use this tried and true method of horn section recording. In this method, we're going to use a single directional mic in between every two players of the same family of instruments. That means a mic for every two brass instruments, like trumpets and trombones, and another for every two saxes. Balance the level between the players by having one of them move closer or further away from the mic. Don't forget to try different types of microphones to get the right sound for the track.
